    Maybe Ive only seen few games but is the reputation of Ricky Sanchez to be agood defender in pick roll situations that he is capable of covering perimeter players..He isn't really a defensive presence or a stretch shooter so imo I would gamble to have holland/or Galindo to play the 4 and Balkman at 5..
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    I'm actually looking forward an unlikely decisive Canada vs. Argentina! With all the emotions reserved to the round-robin 2nd round, the knockout stage turns out to be not so relevant. Maybe a format change would be interesting for the competition.

    Well this is the last year of this format regardless. Olympic qualifying of course only has two spots, and after that World Cup qualifying shall resemble soccer's more. FIBA Americas shall just be a for pride tournament.
